Kids' Favorite Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

Publisher Photo
My kids love these pumpkin seeds and want them every fall. A little bit of pulp in the mix really adds to the flavor, so don't rinse the seeds. —Gwyn Reiber, Spokane, Washington

I never roasted pumpkin seeds before - something my Mom always did though - and this was super tasty. The worster sauce/garlic combo is perfect!

MY REVIEW

I hadn't made or eaten roasted pumpkin seeds since I was a kid, but for some reason this year I was hungry for them. I looked at a ton of different seed recipes and finally decided this one looked the tastiest. Made the recipe as written, (including not rinsing the seeds). We LOVED these - they have such a bold, yummy taste! Even with the cayenne, they aren't too spicy at all. I wouldn't be worried about serving it to kids like others have mentioned. I highly recommend this recipe!
